On my network i have 2 proxy servers setup. At the moment there are 2 setup because we are having some connectivity problems with each of the proxies. With both together all connectivity would be fine. So basically this chain would just be a temperary fix if its possible.

My question is this: Is it possible to chain proxies on IE6?

I have read that this syntax might work: proxy02.app.test.domain.com:80 proxy1.domain.com [80]


After entering this information in IE6 and doing a netstat is looks like both are being used

here is my netstat result:

Active Connections

  Proto  Local Address          Foreign Address        State
  TCP    nypc:10866       proxy02.app.test.domain.com:http

  TCP    nypc:21399       proxy1.domain.com:1081  ESTABLISHED

  TCP    nypc:30709       dc01.domain.test.domain.com:epmap  TIME

  TCP    nypc:30710       dc01.domain.test.domain.com:1026  TIME_
WAIT
  TCP    nypc:30722       proxy02.app.test.domain.com:15871
 TIME_WAIT
  TCP    nypc:30723       proxy02.app.test.domain.com:15871
 TIME_WAIT
  TCP    nypc:57299       proxy02.app.test.domain.com:http
CLOSE_WAIT


Does this mean that both proxies are being used?

do you mean chaning proxies, or do you mean to use fallbacks?

Sorry about the last short answer. Didnt have much time on my hands.

I'm looking for a fallback solution. Im not even sure if that is possible. But worth asking though.

AFAIK it's not possiblewith IE
You need a proxy which itself can detect if the next hop is alive and switch to another one if not.
Sorry, don't know of any, orat least how to configure it.
